Try the reservation finder on Touringplans as well. Itís a useful tool.

None of the curly products on the market seemed to help. They either made my hair crunchy or felt sticky. Yuck. I asked about keratin as a means to control the frizz. I never envisioned straight hair.

My hair before keratinÖ


My hair afterÖ


I use very little product, including hairspray on my hair now. I only have to wash it 2-3 times per week vs every day, and I can let it dry naturally and use a straightening iron to spot smooth, or I can blow dry and do nothing else. So, the once a year chemicals donít really bother me too much.
Looks great! Thanks for sharing the info - I have an appointment set with my stylist next month AFTER my next Disney trip - I didn't want to spoil results when I'm flying down the waterslide and swimming at the RIV

When I get out of the shower I put my hair in a hair towel while I'm doing the rest of my morning routine, which helps get some of the moisture out. Once I start actually drying my hair, it is about 10 minutes. But at the end of that I'm done. My hair is styled to my liking.

The only negative I have found is that I get really hot when using it. I normally would get dressed and then dry my hair, but the first few times I used this, I got sweaty. So now I just don't get dressed until after I'm done drying my hair.
See, that's me - I get too hot and impatient, but will check this out!

ermindy!!!!! Wow!! You are right Ö the Keratin is a real game changer. I had no idea how big the results are with that treatment. Your hair looks great!

My hair is wavy when it dries naturally and the dryer brush or occasional flat iron are enough to tame it.
Thanks, will check this out, too!

Default Advice Needed

We are currently at SSR in a two bedroom and are supposed to move to a 1 bedroom on Friday for 2 nights. I want to stay in this villa for the whole time, the 14 points it will cost is totally worth it to me that we donít have to move.

Would it be better to go to the front desk and request this, itís available online, or should I contact MS but would still have to trek up to the front desk to link the new reservation. Really donít want to call MS because I read an article about 4 hour waits on hold yesterday.

You will need to go up to the front desk and speak with the manager. I have done this in the past to lock in the room. Calling MS is a pain at best.

This is perfect. Will do.

Are they authorized to take the extra points? Last year we decided to stay an extra day at BWV and reserved a room online for a standard studio and the front desk arranged for us to stay in the 1 bedroom so we didn’t have to move so they “gifted” us the difference between the 1 bedroom and the studio. A lovely sprinkling of pixie dust that I would never expect again but it was greatly appreciated.

That is what i am suspecting they might do. It would be easier for them to just "give" you the room, then to go through the hassle of working it out with MS. But it all depends on the CM and how magical they are feeling today. Hoping for some Pixie dust to come your way today!

Looking for help understanding cash rates. Is there not always a DVC cash rate? I'm trying to help my sister out with her reservations and the rate that member services quoted me was the same as booking outside of DVC.
